ACS1 5.0d Is The Fastest Diesel On The Hockenheim Short Circuit
AC Schnitzer vehicles are perfectly at home in the fast lane of the motorway in flowing traffic. Just like on public roads, they are equally at home on the race track. Because every AC Schnitzer vehicle is as ideally suited to the track use as to everyday use.

Following the motto: “Anything goes, everything’s optional”, the customer is always on the safe side because he can have precisely the level of driving potential he chooses.

And “Anything goes” is precisely what AC Schnitzer vehicles have proven in countless tests. But now the AC Schnitzer ACS1 5.0d (based on BMW 120d) has surpassed itself and achieved a record which was previously considered reserved for more powerful sports cars.

The AC Schnitzer ACS1 5.0d is the fastest Diesel car on the Hockenheimring with a lap time of 1:13.80 min. This impressive result was achieved by the trade magazine “sport auto” during a vehicle test (see also “sport auto no. 11/2016).

With this result, the ACS1 5.0d has catapulted into top league of sports cars, and certainly won the hearts of all drivers with petrol or diesel in their blood.
